in his own defense, if you are sedated even on a sedation holiday, can you see any circumstance where that could be considered competency? >> absolutely not. and that's why he needs to have a lawyer present. the idea that a lawyer is not there when a judge is talking to him and that the judge is -- if it's happening, is playing this game with the prosecutors of appearing, not warning him of his right to have council, this raises serious problems. this escalates the issue beyond government officials, beyond police officials or fbi officials trying to deny him his rights, to the judiciary denying him his rights if in fact the magistrate didn't warn him of his right to council and didn't really wait until a lawyer was there. the public defender's ready to come into this case. they're 15 minutes away from the hospital. there's no reason why if it's true, now we don't know the facts, a lawyer was not present with him when that magistrate appeared in his hospital room. >> well, let's hope there was one. and for anybody who thinks he doesn't need a lawyer and why should we protect this man's
detainee interrogation group made up of a bunch of high-ranking officials, fbi, cia, defense department. beyond the obvious of why, mark, what are the first questions they will ask him? >> well, beyond the why, of course, is who directed you? did you do this upper the direction of a foreign government or foreign service group and then the questions will go from there. were you funded by any organization or group? what did you seek to gain by doing this atrocity? et cetera, et cetera. go down the line. they'll also want to know, more importantly, is well the web. who they contacted. who else knew in the u.s.? did they have any aid and support right there in the boston area or anywhere else in the united states of america or around the world? >> mark, unfortunately, i'm not sure you can hear me. at all. >> i can hear you now. >> guys we're having some technical difficulties. >> i can hear you now. >> try this and see. >> i apologize for that. >> mark, i don't think you need to apologize for anything. i think we're having some technical difficulties here. i've gone through three ifbs to tr
will determine whether he will get legal counsel. he will get a defense attorney and then therefore, the case proceeds. >> from a federal law enforcement official, being told the suspect is alive. he has unspecified medical needs. we have to see what those are. it could affect whether it's the courthouse or whether you get medical treatment at another site. according to this official, an aggressive sweep of the scene is underway to see if there are explosives on the site. he was taken out of the boat without incident. they are having everything in the area, including the s.w.a.t. team, the bomb teams, the sniffer teams, to make sure they don't have a volatile, dangerous crime scene environment. this suspect is alive, has unspecified medical needs and according to that federal official, an aggressive sweep of that scene under way. >> i can tell you the police officers standing a little bit further down from the block certainly seem a lot more happy right now at this moment. the least tense that we've seen them all day long. no doubt, the city of boston, watertown, all surrounding areas, a lot
and prosecute him in federal court. >> you don't want to turn over intelligence gathering to a criminal defense lawyer and the terrorist. you want to be able to gather tell without a lawyer present. under the law of war there is no right to a legal counsel when you're being questioned for national security purposes. i hope the obama administration will allow us that option that exists in our law. they have a very bad track record here. >> reporter: fox news is told investigators are probing a potential link to a islamist group as first reported on fox over the weekend. they were responsible for the attack on moscow airport. in response the group issued a statement saying their disagreement is with russia. they did not deny knowing the brothers. also according to one source who has reviewed that, they were undercut in their claims trying to deny any connection because they pointed the finger as russia as being responsible for these bombings which of course there is no evidence to support that, jon. jon: catherine herridge, lots of tangled leads to unravel here. catherine, thank you. >> reporter:
a 12-gauge shotgun and have a good defensive effect. and there's the element of surprise. you've got police all over the place in watertown, so i don't really think that this is applicable. i think there are people that want to make this argument, but 12-gauge shotgun, there are many weapons, 2,000-plus weapons that are available to people for choice without an assault weapon. >> we're running out of time. so i'm not going to give you a chance to answer that question, congressman king. i'll give you a chance to answer the other question. this has also spilled into the debate over immigration reform. some conservatives like charles grassley, senator from iowa, are saying, before we reform the system, we ought to focus more on who we let into this country. your response? >> first of all, i don't think it should have a severe impact on the immigration debate. i do think it should focus on whether or not it should be refined, and if people are coming from a country which has terrorist background, if there's a strong terrorist element in that country, there should be extra vetting for peo
intelligence and it should become an integral part of our civil defense. do you think you have to acknowledge that and in a sense, activate that in some form better from capitol hill? are we spending our resources in this country in the right place? >> i think we have to do more to encourage as has been done in new york, if they see something, say something and also urge and encourage the local community to speak out whenever they see anything that's out of the ordinary, even if it involves people of their own ethnic group and their own religion and their own persuasion. if they see something report it because it will come out of these local communities. >> i think there should be more direction on that. i think if more funding is necessary, absolutely, and they worry too much about political correctness and we have to get the message out and we also, though, i think, have to be telling local police and if we have to provide more funding at the federal level for them to build up their own intelligence unit and not just rely on the federal government and that's at the federal level. >> congres
on the house subcommittee for national security, homeland defense and foreign operations. congressman, thanks for joining us by phone on this saturday. >> thanks for having me, craig. >> we saw those massive celebrations in the streets of boston, around boston last night. but as the dust settles today, what's the mood like there? how long is it going to take for folks to get back to normal? >> it will take a while longer. i think there's a great deal of relief being vented right now. people are just glad that these two individuals have been cap sbhaurd little bit of a caution out there as well, people wondering, as the president said, what else is involved, if anything here and who else might be involved? i think that mostly, a lot of concern for the families. i was in wilmington earlier today where sean collier's family had lived. he was the m.i.t. officer who passed away. people there are incredibly supportive of that family, the law enforcement people there trying to make sure the family was able to get to the hospital when the incident happened. so, there's just a mixture of feelings and
for the cia as a former deputy assistant secretary of defense. how critical is it that the 90 year-old brother of tamerlan tsarnaev be caught alive? >> well, is important. there is still some months that we don't know about this. is there a firm international connection? with a self radicalized? what motivated them? are there more potential terrorist attacks in the future? other part of the sleeper so? is the picture gets more clear new information makes a blurry, and there is just so much that we need to know. getting a hold of him and the freaking get informational tell us a lot. dagen: of course we mentioned the city has been on virtual lock down the public transition down. all of your major ones. so closed for today. amtrak service was closed down. people told by the governor of the state to stay indoors. boston and the surrounding areas. how critical is that? how critical is it that for these authorities to be a will to do their job? >> well, first of all, is public safety, of course. there are armed law enforcement officers, federal, state, local, out there trying to get this guy. anothe
disarmament. the reaganites in the defense department were horrified by this and put a stop to it but reagan didn't go all the way with reaganism when he had a chance to end the cold war, especially the nuclear threats. so it's a hard-core republican belief. if you remember the pup pup prime -- republican primaries of 2012, it was not that long ago there were eight or ten republican candidates in simi valley for a debate at the reagan library and every one of them said reagan set the example how maring be strong, reagan did with the soviet union and we should do it today in iran, we should do it -- we were right toy trite in iraq. america should use its power to achieve its spend destroy its enemies. i worked in the cold war and in the middle east. you have 29% of the american people agree with that today. >> richard, do you want to say something? you're leaning forward. >> no. >> okay. we want to take questions from the audience if anybody has a question, and i think there's a microphone somewhere that someone is going to bring up. why don't we start right up here on the aisle, blue shirt.
wolf before they strike. in the end, the best defense against a lone wolf always will be friends, family, people in the community who say something's wrong with this person, they're going bad. it is the old see something, say something, call the cops right away. >> senator joe lieberman, i got to leave it there. a man who's basically one of the founders of the homeland security department. always good to have your perspective on. >> good to be with you. >>> cities across the country on high alert this morning. we've seen it here in washington outside the white house, pennsylvania avenue's once again closed to pedestrians as president obama promises to hunt down whoever is responsible. former obama senior advisor david axelrod will join me next. acceler-rental. at a hertz expressrent kiosk, you can rent a car without a reservation... and without a line. now that's a fast car. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz. if you've got it, you know how hard it can be to breathe and man, you know how that feels. copd includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. spir
and the defense intelligence agency to try to be sure that these two did not have others that they were working with. that this, you know, is truly over. we just don't know that yet. >> and we will go straight to the president the minute we see him approach the podium. pierre thomas, you're listening? >> reporter: diane, one of the things that struck me about the press conference is, it reminded us of the sheer violence we saw this week. the bombing. mangled people. the police chief tonight talked about 200 rounds being fired in the exchange with the suspects last night. bombs being thrown, homemade grenades. and he used a word that we don't often hear, we've been hearing too often of late, that the m.i.t. police officer was assassinated. i think we first reported today that they walked up on that security officer, that police officer, fired on him and executed him in his car. >> and, again, the police said they could detect his presence. the suspect's presence from those helicopters, presumably? >> they can do that. the extraordinary thing, and you mentioned it earlier, diane, that homeowner w
officials after the 9/11 attack approved actions for cia and defense personnel based upon legal guidance that has since been repudiated. the most important decision may have been to declare the geneva convention did not apply to al-qaeda and taliban captives in afghanistan or guantanamo. the administration never specified what rules would apply instead. the task force believes that u.s. defense intelligence professionals and service members in harm's way need absolutely clear orders on the treatment of detainees, requiring at a minimum compliance with common article iii of the geneva convention. this was not done. civilian leaders and military commanders have an affirmative responsibility to insure that their subordinates comply with the laws of war. president obama has committed to observe the geneva conventions through an executive order, but a future president could change it by the stroke of a pen. congress, one of our recommendations, needs to work with the administration to strengthen the torture statute, the war crimes exact the uniform code of military justice to remove loopholes
